My Week With Marilyn has rehashed our Marilyn Monroe obsession and apparently Ferragamo shares in our love for the fashion icon. Salvatore Ferragamo announced that Monroe will be the subject of an exhibition in Florence’s Museo Salvatore Ferragamo.
According to Interview Magazine, “the highlight of the exhibit will be the collection of 14 pairs of shoes Monroe had bought decades before in Ferragamo’s Park Avenue shop in New York. Ferragamo designed the shoes for the icon himself, including a pair of four-inch stiletto-heeled pumps he created to enhance Monroe’s calves and swaying walk.” In other news, Monroe-related fashion and art pieces will also be on display (not that we care as much about this as we do about the shoes!).
Opening in July, those of you lucky enough to live in Italy will get to peruse the classic icon’s closet — a dream of ours which we will envy you for forever.
